Sample Case Filed in Federal Court against Collection Consultants of California
In 2015, a judge in U.S. District Court, Central District of California, denied Collection Consultants of California’s motion to dismiss Flores vs. Collection Consultants of California for alleged violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and California’s Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. According to the judge’s decision, the customer alleged that Collection Consultants of California attempted to collect different amounts of money after he had contested the validity of their debts, and delivered him a wide range of letters. The customer said that the last letter sought to accumulate more than $1,200, including more than $300 from unidentified “other creditors,” and alleged that this violated provisions of the FDCPA forbidding false representation of a debt, using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt, and collecting a fee not authorized by the agreement creating the debt. Collection Consultants of California argued that the case ought to be dismissed because the statute of limitations had passed, that the previous letter was not a debt collection letter, but instead an offer to repay the debt, and that the correspondence was not misleading. The court rejected CCOC’s arguments, and refused the debt collection agency’s motion to dismiss, thus allowing the case to move forward.

Understanding Your Debt Collection Rights
Federal laws protect you. The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA) regulates the behavior of collection agencies by prohibiting actions such as the use of abusive or threatening language; harassment; or the use of false or misleading information to collect a debt. The FCRA regulates how collection agencies and creditors report delinquent debts to credit reporting agencies. Additional consumer protection laws include the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and the Consumer Financial Protection Act (CFPA).
But here’s the rub: If you want to enforce your rights, or recover money for violations — you need to sue. These laws provide individuals like you with a means to seek monetary damages in court. For example, the FDCPA allows consumers who have been violated to recover damages of up to $1,000, plus attorney fees and court costs.
